Have Blurred and Cloudy Vision? Why?

A cataract is a condition in which the clear lens of the eyes becomes cloudy, preventing sufficient light rays from entering the eyes and impairing vision. Age is the most common reason for developing cataracts. Development of cataract is also associated with family history (if family or relative has cataract before), unhealthy lifestyle (such as smoking and heavy alcohol intake) and prolonged exposure to sunlight or radiation. Cataracts can cause eyes to be irritable to glare easily, lead to decrease in visual acuity and cause vision to be blurred and cloudy, or even result in double vision.

Feed your eyes.

In various studies and clinical trials, antioxidant vitamins such as vitamins A, C and E can help maintain healthy cells and tissues in the eyes. These vitamins are found in fruits and vegetables such as oranges, tomatoes, kale and spinach. Two key protective antioxidants are lutein and zeaxanthin, which also help to protect against macular degeneration and protect eyes from free radical damage. Omega 3 fatty acids are essential for nerve conduction in the retina. For healthy eyes, eat a good and balanced diet with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, with oily fish like salmon, sardine or mackerel.

Cut down fried foods for healthy cholesterol level

Do French fries contain cholesterol? No, dietary cholesterol comes only from animal based foods. French fries, along with coconut milk (found in laksa) and margarine, have no cholesterol. However, French fries are high in saturated fat, which will increase the production of cholesterol in the body. Hence, eat fried foods sparingly.

Vitamin C is an antioxidant that slows the rate of free-radical damage -- free radicals are unstable molecules that damage collagen and cause skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles. Researches suggest that vitamin C may also reduce sunburn caused by exposure to ultraviolet radiation and prevent the consequences of long-term sun exposure, which can lead to skin cancer.
